At last year's Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival, we recorded an interview with Washboard Chaz. Chaz is based in New Orleans, and is one of the only professional washboard players around. 2009 was his first time at Centrum, and he was such a great teacher, we asked him back to be on faculty at the 2010 Festival.
In this interview, Chaz talks about the history of the washboard, the Port Townsend experience, and playing the blues.
We still have workshop openings in the 2010 Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival, and in addition to Washboard Chaz, we also will have David Gibson of the Ebony Hillbillies teaching washboard. You can register online, or give us a call at 360-385-3102.
